Course Description

The downhill to flat course, coupled with the typically cool race day weather, can lead to many PRs and BQs. Be cautious on the early downhill miles so you have something left in your quads for the latter miles.

1 / 5 Stars


I ran this is 2014. It didn't finish where it was supposed to, so not a certified course. Course was also short and fluid stations were mostly out of anything for slower runners.
